Mon­day night was a time for cel­e­bra­tion, a time for tears, a time for laugh­ter and a time for re­flec­tion.

It was a night that has be­come an an­nual event for Mis­sis­sippi State women's bas­ket­ball fans and the team they fol­lowed. Mon­day's Hail State Hoops Ban­quet was an­other suc­cess for coach Vic Schae­fer and his team as the Bull­dogs hon­ored the sup­port staff and the fans af­ter an­other record-set­ting year.

“Peo­ple have told me that this was the great­est team in Mis­sis­sippi State his­tory,” Schae­fer said.

The Mill hosted the event once again this year to a ca­pac­ity crowd. MSU fans were treated to the awards ban­quet for the team, the fi­nal se­nior re­marks from four out­go­ing play­ers, Schae­fer fi­nal thoughts on the team and a high­light video.

Jor­dan Dan­berry won the team's Aca­demic Award af­ter fin­ish­ing the year with a 4.0 grade point av­er­age. Fresh­man Chloe Bibby was cho­sen the Rookie Award win­ner, Roshunda John­son was Most Im­proved, Jazzmun Holmes was the Sixth Player of the Year, Blair Schae­fer won Miss Hus­tle and shared the Miss De­fense Award with Teaira McCowan.
